Bulverde Road PS&E
San Antonio, TX
Bexar County selected LAN to provide plans, specifications and estimates for the expansion and widening of Bulverde Road in north San Antonio, Texas. The existing two-lane rural roadway will be widened to a four-lane urban roadway and include the addition of curbs and a center turn lane as well as a traffic signal at the intersection of Bulverde Oaks.
This 1.2 mile project required the inclusion of three water quality ponds due to its location within the environmentally sensitive Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone. These ponds are designed to filter pollution and sediment from roadway water runoff. This project also incorporates added drainage features like expanding box culverts at three major creek crossings.
Plans for this fourth phase of the Bulverde Road expansion will be completed summer 2015 and construction is planned to let in spring of 2016.
